Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. As founder and medical director of Atlanta Vision Institute, he draws upon his skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist to correct nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic vision with refractive surgery. In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.
There are two things that are absolutely vital when someone first becomes a parent: lots of sleep, and peace of mind. AlphaCord grants that second essential by providing umbilical-cord blood collection and storage services to brand-new mothers. Because it's chock-full of life-giving stem cells, saving a baby's umbilical cord blood may help doctors treat the child—and potentially relatives—for a number of diseases later on. The collection process is simple: the same professional that delivers the baby collects the blood from the mother, keeping the baby and any queasy storks entirely removed from the process. Once it's collected, the blood is swiftly couriered to the AlphaCord storage facility where it is cryogenically frozen and stored for future use.
